On April 20th, Christian turned One! We had a low-key celebration, but it was a celebration none-the-less. I made his favorite dinner and then we had chocolate cake with blue icing. We didn't do any presents or party - just a small family celebration. Christian was serenaded throughout the day with "Happy Birthday" from his brothers. Still too young to blow the candle out, Christian did try to grab the flame instead. Thankfully William came to the rescue and assisted in blowing out the candle and everyone joined in on the cake eating.
You can see that at first he was a little uncertain.
But he's a quick study.
Here's a video that I was having difficulty embedding.
In fact, he liked it so much that after dinner had been cleaned up, he still wanted to sit at the table and finish his cake. He even seemed to enjoy the Orioles game in the background.
